While most who drink alcohol do not experience harm, harms related to alcohol misuse are far reaching, impacting individuals, families, and communities.

The development of A Culture of Shared Responsibility, Manitoba’s strategy to reduce alcohol-related harms, included a review of current policy and evidence, a cross-sector stakeholder forum with the private and public sector, and a series of cross-sector discussion groups.  Aligning with evidence-informed practice and proven policy interventions, the strategy offers recommendations that build on ongoing initiatives across the province.

Manitoba’s strategy aligns with recommendations outlined by Canada’s National Alcohol Strategy (NAS), Reducing alcohol-related harm in Canada (2007), and the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Global strategy to reduce harmful use of alcohol (2010).

The strategy offers Manitobans the opportunity to collectively develop a culture of shared responsibility and reduce alcohol-related harm. It represents the beginning of a conversation.
